New Book out: mHealth in Practice: Mobile technology for health promotion in the developing world

Patricia Michael and Jonathan Donner have published mHealth in Practice (Bloomsbury, 2012)  on the use of mobile telephones for affecting behavior change. I had the pleasure of contributing a chapter on Adhere.IO, the behavioral diagnostics developed at MIT for medication monitoring. We are really proud to tell our story alongside other global health and technology practitioners who have invented and deployed mhealth systems around the world and serving many thousands of patients.

The goal of the book was not to a assemble a catalog of solutions, but an anthology of how the solutions came to be and the lessons learned for others who want to jump into the space.
